Some tickets prices have seen hikes of over 30%, and fans of both clubs have hit out at English Football's governing body for charging 'extortionate' fees.

Seems greedy from FA!
Via the Mail, adult tickets start from £45, which is down by £1 from last year's final between Arsenal and Chelsea, but the other three categories are priced at £80, £115 and £145. Last year those categories were £65, £85 and £115.
Hitting the nail on the head, a Red Devils Supporters Trust spokesperson said: "Ordinary fans should not be punished for the FA's previous poor financial decisions over the Wembley redevelopment. We are equally astonished and angered by the increases which are as much as 30 per cent.
Outrageous pricing for the FA Cup final tickets. No wonder real fans end up turning their backs on this game.— Neil Custis (@ncustisTheSun) April 22, 2018
Already been said but those FA Cup Final ticket prices are ridiculous. The @FA are a joke.— Adam McKola (@AdamMcKola) April 24, 2018
Not happy with getting the two semi finals and a final there, they want to crank up tickets for fans that will have just done the semi-final and will have renewals coming up.
Dear @FA Just seen the FA Cup final ticket prices, the £65 Semi Final ticket I had is now £115 what justification is there for a 77% price increase when operationally there are no major differences or overheads in staging a football match or is it just pure unadulterated greed??— simon renwick (@simon3677) April 22, 2018
"This is not an ordinary competitive market. It is a captive audience and the FA - who have a monopoly - are trying to extract as much as they can from supporters."
The FA have attempted to save face amid the backlash by pointing out that this is the first time in three years they have raised prices for the FA Cup final.
They also reiterate that the fixture is 'one of the most prestigious sporting events in the sporting calendar', and insist the money generated from the occasion is to be reinvested into the game - something that will surely not be enough to appease the enraged sets of fans.
Manchester United, victorious over Tottenham on Saturday, were joined in the final by the Blues after they beat Southampton 2-0 on the Sunday.
